Shawnee (and Oklahoma City) Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers

Each day that we drive, we share the roads with 80,000-pound semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles whose drivers are trying to complete routes in the least amount of time possible. They often cut corners on safety regulations, and they are often distracted from staying focused on the primary task at hand — driving their vehicle safely.

At The West Law Firm, our lawyers are thoroughly experienced with the causes of serious truck wrecks and how truck drivers and their employers attempt to cover up evidence. Our dedicated team brings more than 100 years of combined litigation experience to your case.

We independently investigate all aspects of your case, including the:

  • Accident scene
  • Police report
  • Witness testimony
  • Driver's logbook, safety record and background

We collaborate with accident reconstructionists, medical experts and economists to establish the full value of your case by evaluating all available evidence, the effects of your injuries and the financial costs of your injuries. We leave no stone unturned, and we are prepared to challenge the defense in your best interests.

The Perils Of Distracted Truck Driving

The force of collision with a commercial vehicle, especially a fully loaded 18-wheeler, is far greater than the force involved in any other car wreck. If a truck driver is distracted, the weight of the vehicle combined with speed is a recipe for disaster.

Truck drivers can be easily distracted several times during each hour of driving by several means:

  • Cellphone use, including texting
  • GPS system or radio use
  • Fixating his or her gaze on a passing building, sign, vehicle or person
  • Eating, drinking or smoking while driving
  • Reading while driving

Distracted driving may also occur because of truck driver fatigue. Long hours at the wheel cause drivers to be distracted much easier and for longer durations than when they are fully alert. From smoking while driving to texting accidents, we can establish negligence and pursue the compensation you deserve for damages, including medical expenses, lost income, property damage, disability, pain and suffering, and long-term care, if necessary.

Insurance Companies Do Not Work In Your Best Interests

Even your own insurance company will try to settle with you for less than the amount of compensation you may be entitled to for injuries and damages.

  • Don't sign an initial settlement offer from any insurance company without first speaking with a lawyer at The West Law Firm. You deserve straightforward, honest representation if you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident. We are prepared to help you through every step of the legal process, and we can handle all communications with insurance companies.
